Where Do I Come From?

This pair of tables, based on information from the Living City Campaign may help to answer that question.  By Class and Race it tells where in the Forgotten Realms your character would be Common (+) or Very unusual (-). No entry means possible, @ means Homeland.

What about Clerics?  A bit more complicated since you have to figure out where your God's Temple is.  Use common sense: Racial Gods follow racial locations, large cities are likely to have temples to all the major deities.

Table 1 also gives some indication what parts of Medieval Earth some parts of Faerun loosely resemble.
